Hadjah lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with five children, all of whom attend school. She is also looking after three nephews who are orphans.
She has been keeping poultry for two years, working seven days a week. She also sells plastic plates, cups, buckets, basins, and food containers to earn extra income.
She has requested a loan of UShs 2,000,000 from MCDT- SACCO to enable her to procure chicks and feed. Her challenges include seasonality and diseases. Her dream is to expand her farm by putting up other chicken houses and to accumulate profits that will enable her to build rental houses. She joined MCDT because of the relatively low interest charged on loans. She lives in her house with access to electricity but no piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees, food and water.
